    Is there a superstar DC or NFL DC that could be coming to Storrs? After bringing in Lashlee, the universe to choose seems a lot bigger!!

    I would think they make that announcement tomorrow. Hopefully it's another slam dunk.

    I don't know, but Athletic Director Dave will probably tell Randy who he's hiring for that job, too.

    (OK, now I'm doing it intentionally.)

    At this rate it will probably be Bill Belichick

    Al Golden as DC would give Athletic Director Dave a true hat trick of successful hires!

    What are they doing? Why haven't they told us yet? It's obvious something is wrong....

    Given the connections it's wouldn't be outrageous if it were Tracy Claeys.

    In a dream world, Lawrence Taylor, off field issues aside. Anticipation building for Benedict's announcement.

    That's been my feeling as well, also given the timing here. I actually kind of expect it now. At the very least I think BG made a call to put him and Randy in a room together.

    I would be surprised. I just think it's too politically hot to make sense. Is the guy so outstanding that we need to risk legislative support for the University?

    Taking into consideration our current financial situation (read: Diaco buyout), paying our OC $350K, and HCRE being a defensive guy, I think the DC will be less of a big splash and more of a bargain buy to fit the coaches' salary pool.

    The Asst salary pool would allow for a similar paycheck to the DC as well.

    No need to call Claeys. He is toxic right now.

    Like everyone else, I believe that if all goes well, Lashlee is the "heir apparent" when Randy retires. Unless, of course, he does really well and is scoffed up quickly by a major school.

    We seem to be in a "win now"/"bring the program back to immediate respectability" mode, rather than a 3 year build mode. Fortunately, UConn's HC and OC hires may open the door up to additional candidates and we will not have to settle for a retread or unproven coach.

    Sadly you might be right. But the guy is not Art Briles. What he did was more stupid than wrong.
